Protest Planned Parenthood Albuquerque, NM (Sat.) February 11th

​Protest Rally in Albuquerque one of over 200 nationwide calling for the defunding of abortion giant Planned Parenthood
Albuquerque, NM-  On February 11, a protest rally will be held at the Planned Parenthood facility at 701 San Mateo Blvd. NE in Albuquerque, from 10-11am. This event is one of over 200 being coordinated nationwide by the #ProtestPP Coalition, calling for Planned Parenthood to be stripped of all federal funding, and for all such funding to be redirected to Federally Qualified Health Centers that do not perform abortions. Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain, receives over $420 million from the federal government every year.

Congressional leaders are working to cut funding for the controversial organization as part of the budget reconciliation process, while preserving the assistance this funding is meant to provide for to poor women. Protest Rallies will be held nationwide on February 11 in over 200 cities from coast to coast, supporting the defunding effort and educating the public about Planned Parenthood’s central role in the abortion industry and their long record of unethical activity.

“Planned Parenthood claims that American women rely on them for healthcare, but in fact four out of five women will never set foot in a Planned Parenthood facility,” said Tara Shaver Spokeswoman for Protest ABQ. “Planned Parenthood provides less than 1% of annual pap tests and zero mammograms, but performs 34% of annual abortions in the U.S. They’ve been caught shielding child predators, defrauding Medicaid, and harvesting fetal tissue for profit. This controversial organization does not deserve our tax dollars, it deserves to be closed down.”

Shaver emphasizes that no funding would be taken away from programs that help poor women and families. Every dollar taken from Planned Parenthood would be redirected to Federally Qualified Health Centers that provide a wider range of services and higher standard of care than Planned Parenthood, without doing abortions. “The effort to defund Planned Parenthood has nothing to with taking healthcare away from women. It’s about taking tax dollars away from the nation’s largest abortion chain,” she explained.

#ProtestPP is a coalition of state and national pro-life groups, headed by three national pro-life activist organizations: Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Created Equal, and the Pro-Life Action League. For the February 11 rally, 40 Days for Life is also serving as a major partner.

March For Life Albuquerque, New Mexico January 27, 2017

March For Life Albuquerque, New Mexico January 27, 2017

By Tara Shaver,

Albuquerque, NM- Today over 100 people gathered in front of Albuquerque’s Planned Parenthood to stand in solidarity with those marching for life in Washington D.C. This was completely grassroots. It was sponsored by all of us who want to stand up and give a voice to the voiceless. 

Many woman today told us that those who vulgarly and hatefully raged against President Trump last week did not represent them. We also heard that many people feel a sense of hope for true and positive change with the new administration that is heeding the voice of “We the people.”

It is a beautiful thing when people spontaneously desire to come together in unity and stand for life, today was just another example of how that is possible in New Mexico.

The next major protest at Planned Parenthood in Albuquerque will be a nationwide call to #DefundPP. All are welcome and encouraged to attend.

#DefundPP Protest Albuquerque: Sponsored by ProtestABQ.com

When: Saturday, February 11th
Where: 701 San Mateo Blvd. NE
Time: 10:00-11:00am
